Can drinking too much water during the day be dangerous?
If so, how much is too much?
drinking too much water can kill you
After 5 seconds on google.
so what would be a good limit?
edit: nm, just read the above post
Kidneys can only do about 15 liters of water a day, so 16 liters seems like a good place to start
I see what you did there.
Nothing to see here, move along people
some kid died not to long ago from frat hazing ithat involved the drinking of excessive amounts of water.
OROVILLE, California -- Seven men are facing trial over the death of a California college student who died in a fraternity initiation.
Chico State University student Matthew Carrington died in February after being ordered to drink water from five-gallon jugs as fans blasted him with cold air.
Four members of the Chi Tau fraternity will stand trial for involuntary manslaughter. Three others face hazing charges.
A defense attorney says the frat members didn’t know that drinking large amounts of water could be fatal.
An autopsy found that Carrington died of an interrupted heartbeat brought on by “water intoxication.” He also suffered from brain swelling caused by drinking too much water and hypothermia.
